They are easy to organize and it’s easy for anyone to play and feel included.

Location. Location. Location! Although this tip may seem obvious, you can’t scavenge without knowing where the hunt will take place. Scavenger hunts can be held just about anywhere, whether you choose to do it at school, the backyard, or your living room, it is entirely up to you. With the fall season upon us and Thanksgiving right around the corner, why not take the hunt outdoors and use what fall has to offer!

-

Determine what kind of scavenger hunt you want to have! Give each participant a list of items and hide them around the location of the hunt. The first team to find all the items will be crowned winners of the scavenger hunt! Hint: Thanksgiving can be fun with all the decorations and more, so finding something with a turkey on it shouldn’t be a chore!

-

Have a prize for the winning team! Having a prize for the winning team can motivate those participating. If the hunt is for a children’s birthday party, small collectible prizes like D-Lectables can be a great reward. If your scavenger hunt is Thanksgiving themed, have the team with the least amount of items clean up all the dishes!

-

Come up with a theme for the scavenger hunt! Having a themed scavenger hunt is a fun way to add some flare to the hunt! Not only will having a theme add imagination to the scavenger hunt, it will make it much easier to choose the items and the winning prize! Hosting a Thanksgiving themed scavenger hunt is a great way to get into the fall spirit and connect with friends and family, that is of course if you aren’t too full from all the turkey!

-

Be sure to have fun! Whether you’re on the winning or losing team, be sure to enjoy the hunt! A scavenger hunt can turn everyday routines into something much more fun and add an element of enthusiasm and friendly competitiveness. So regardless of how your team performs, be sure to have fun and remember these tips for the next time you plan a scavenger hunt!

Regardless if you’re indoors or out, use your very own household items for a festive Thanksgiving Day scavenger hunt. Thanksgiving is a time for being thankful. It brings people together, so start scavenging and find something that comes in pairs like shoes, gloves, socks or even two different colored Kiddy Up pit balls will do!

Here are some Scavenger Hunt worthy objectives for your little ones to find!

-

  • Make use of what the fall season gives us. With the leaves changing colors and falling to the ground, go out and search for something that fits in your hand that is red, orange, yellow or brown, just take a look around! But what if you’re too full or not quite finished eating just yet?
  •  Well remember, family and friends are priceless, but a picture is worth a thousand words, so find a group photo before you go back to the table to finish your seconds.
  • As everyone knows, Thanksgiving meals can be very stuffing, so find something that is more stuffed than you, a fuzzy teddy bear is a good clue.
  • Another fun Thanksgiving Day themed scavenger hunt activity is finding a pen and paper that is red, black, or blue because the last task is a brain teaser. Do not rush or shove, simply draw a picture of those you love and are most thankful of.

-With these fun helpful hints, you and your family can have some great fun this Thanksgiving season!
